CSIO5* Lummen 2017

A sure sign of spring in Europe is the kick-off of the FEI Nations Cup, and this weekend the action finally got underway at CSIO5* Lummen where Germany emerged as winners in Europe Division 1 after a three-team jump-off. Here, a happy Mario Stevens celebrates as victory is secured for him and his team-mates. All photos (c) Tiffany Van Halle for World of Showjumping.
